What’s new

The latest Serviceguard for Linux release (12.00) introduces:

  • Serviceguard for Linux support of SAP HANA though Serviceguard extension for SAP for Linux – eliminating the need for complex manual recovery procedures and minimizing unplanned downtime in case of a component outage within a HANA appliance
  • Redesigned Serviceguard Manager for Linux – now with a similar look and feel to HP One View, it provides a high level overview of multiple HP Serviceguard clusters across a data center from a single window
  • Cluster Analytics and Simulation – a new manageability feature that reports vital cluster metrics to help you gain a better understanding of your configuration and the impact of administrative tasks on your cluster before actually executing them
  • Deeper virtualization integration with VMware VMotion Support
  • Additional storage and filesystem support

Downtime: It’s not IF but WHEN

Fast failover and high data integrity for your critical workloads

Provide business continuity and disaster recovery capabilities for your critical applications

Serviceguard for Linux intelligently monitors your applications so that when a failure is detected, it automatically and transparently recovers them in seconds without compromising data integrity and performance.


Features Benefits
Fast failover and recovery Monitors the availability of critical resources and applications and provides fast failover in the event of a failure, in as little as 4 seconds.1
High data integrity Cluster arbitration is essential to ensure the highest level of availability and data integrity. HP offers Quorum Service, proactive data protection logic that allows Serviceguard for Linux to provide the highest level of data integrity and reliability.
Zero downtime during maintenance Advanced features such as Live Application Detach (LAD) and Rolling Upgrades allow you to perform maintenance on a cluster or install upgrades for applications and the OS with zero planned downtime.2
Shortened cluster setup time The Toolkits and Extensions portfolio offers predefined scripts that allow you to automatically setup your applications within Serviceguard clusters. With these toolkits and extensions, you can cut up to 93% of the setup time it takes to get an application protected, going from months to days. This equates to 4x faster deployment with consistent administration and management of any mission critical workload.3
Disaster recovery capability HP Serviceguard Disaster Recovery Solutions for Linux enable you to remain online even after the loss of a data center, regardless of the distance. It provides you with the ability to face the challenge of getting your systems up and running after a disaster, in as little time as possible, without impacting performance. Learn more
Simplified cluster management HP Serviceguard Manager for Linux allows users to visually configure, monitor, manage and administer a cluster and its components (e.g. nodes, packages). Intuitive color-coded icons will help quickly identify problems with the cluster so users can quickly react and resolve issues. HP Serviceguard Manager is also integrated with HP System Insight Manager (HP SIM) to enable management of multiple clusters running on Linux or HP-UX from a single browser.
Full solution support As solid as the cluster itself, HP is solely accountable to you for all aspects of the solution, eliminating wasted time determining accountability among suppliers.
Commitment to offering choice Rather than developing proprietary solutions which limit customer choice, HP Serviceguard for Linux leverages and supports emerging open-source standards to ensure interoperability of cluster components.

Fast failover and high data integrity for your critical workloads

 

  1. Configuration dependent excluding cluster reformation time.
  2. Source: Based on HP Lab analysis while performing maintenance activities of the cluster including maintenance of heartbeat network, it used to be a common case where the application had to be brought down. However, with LAD feature it is noticed that the application downtime has been reduced to none even if heartbeat network is maintained and cluster is brought down.
  3. Source: Based on HP Lab analysis that show typical manual effort for integrating Oracle Database into a cluster to require 30 engineering days. With Oracle toolkit from HP, this integration is achieved in two engineering days or less.
